Summary

The XR-410 is TenPoint’s first value-priced, high-performance reverse-draw crossbow. Its reverse-draw design utilizes a full 17-inches power stroke to generate speeds up to 410 fps. The crossbow is also ultra-compact, measuring a narrow 6.5-inches wide when cocked.

The XR-410 offers unmatched balance and pin-point down-range accuracy and the AcuDraw Pro allows for easy, safe, and silent cocking. All of these aspects make the XR-410 from TenPoint one of the most efficient hunting crossbows on the market today for a more than reasonable price. This is definitely the best price/quality ratio for a TenPoint crossbow I’ve seen so far.

4.1

The TenPoint XR-410 is the last of Tenpoint’s 2020 line up crossbows for us to review. This reverse-draw crossbow has incredible specs and technology for a reasonable price. I’ve had a couple of weeks the time with the crossbow to properly test it out, I will share my findings in this in depth review, but I can already tell you I really like the XR-410.

With the TenPoint XR-410, you’ll get the TenPoint RangeMaster Pro Scope mounted on a machined aluminum 7/8-inch Fixed Dovetail Mount, ACUdraw Pro cocking device, 3-Arrow Instant Detach Quiver, three Pro Elite 400 carbon arrows with 100-grain practice points, TenPoint’s integrated Integrated Sound Dampening System.

Dimensions & Weight

The Tenpoint XR-410 measures a full length of 29.5 inches and a narrow design, its uncocked width(axle-to-axle) is 12 inches and just 6.5 inches when cocked. These dimensions are ideal for using this compact crossbow in ground blinds and tree stands. The crossbow weighs 7.4 pounds without accessories.

Construction & Design

Tenpoint built the XR-410 with a 20″ TAC-LITE fluted aluminum flight rail. Additionally, the riser and limb pockets are made from 7075-T6 aluminum alloy.

The Tenpoint XR-410 uses slingshot technology and a vector 4 quad cable system that drastically increases down-range accuracy. Its center-balanced design helps to hold the crossbow steady during aiming and shooting.

The crossbows reverse draw design creates an elongated power stroke of 17″ generating more speed with less draw weight. Additionally, the elongated power stroke also increases the distance the arrow nock is engaged with the string.

Durability

Tenpoint’s XR-410CNC machined cams, riser, and limb pockets are extremely durable. According to TenPoint, you can make thousands of shots before repairs are needed. We did not encounter any durability issues.

Update: After using the crossbow for a couple of weeks now, shooting over 200 shots we still encountered no durability issues whatsoever. This TenPoint crossbow is built to last!

RangeMaster Pro Scope

The Tenpoint XR-410 comes with the high-end RangeMaster Scope. This scope has fully multi-coated 1.5 to 5x optics and an etched glass reticle. It boasts lighted aiming points. The yardages begin at 20 yards and each mark thereafter indicates 10 more yards. So, 20, 30, 40, and 50-yards, and a triangle for 60-yards.

T-5 Trigger

The TenPoint XR-410 is equipped with the auto-engaging T-5 trigger system from TenPoint that made its debut in 2019 and is still known for being one of the safest crossbow triggers on the market. The trigger has a string latch design which drastically reduces friction. The smooth 3.5 lbs trigger offers a consistent crisp break, offering more control, resulting in better arrow groupings.

The scope has a variable speed and arrow drop compensation setting, this feature ensures that the scope requires no adjustment for distance. It has a non-illuminated black dot or one or two rheostat controlled illuminated colored dots(red or green).

AcuDraw Pro Safe & Silent Cocking

The Tenpoint XR-410 is built with the AcuDraw Pro cocking device, this device ensures safe and silent cocking. The device is completely integrated into the stock of the R-410. It converts the crossbow’s pull weight into 8.5 pounds of force.

The cocking device is also very quiet, it features an internal brake system that silently tensions the crossbow and reduces the number of cranks to do so. Also, this cocking device stretches a crossbow 43% faster than other Acudraw cocking devices!

Quiet cocking is a big performance enhancing attribute while hunting, as a cocking device that makes too much noise could scare off potential game.

Also, this cocking device stretches a crossbow 43% faster than other AcuDraw cocking devices!

Integrated Sound Dampening System

TenPoint built XR-410 with an integrated sound-dampening system featuring micro-adjustable dampening rods with high impact rubber dampeners. This integrated sound dampening system dramatically reduces string noise and oscillation. Combined with the silent AcuDraw Pro cocking system makes the Tenpoint XR-410 a very efficient silent stealth-type crossbow.

Arrows & Quiver

The Pro Elite 400 20-inch carbon crossbow arrows that are included in the package are fletched slightly offset and is fitted with a 61-grain aluminum insert, 3.5″ Bohning X Vanes™, and TenPoint’s white Alpha-Nock and receiver for quick lighted nock installation.

We recommend buying the Pro Light Carbon Arrows to reach the marketed speed of 410 fps with the TenPoint XR-410

Pro Elite 400 Carbon Arrow400-grains400 FPS / 142 FP KECheck price on Amazon
EVO-X CenterPunch Carbon Arrow445-grains380 FPS / 143 FP KECheck price on Amazon

The lightweight 3-Arrow Instant Detach Quiver weighs 4.75 ounces. The quiver has a durable strong spine and a rubber loop, which allows you to hang the quiver while you are in a tree stand or ground blind.

Speed and Accuracy

Thanks to a 200-pound draw weight and a 17″ power stroke the Tenpoint XR-410 sends bolts flying downrange with speeds up to 410 feet per second, delivering 143 ft. lbs. KE depending on which arrows you use.

We range tested the XR-410 with the Pro Elite 400 carbon arrows with 100-grain practice points that are included in the package. On our chronograph, we registered a top speed of 392 fps with 384 fps being the average.

The Tenpoint XR-410 is highly accurate beyond 50-yards, the crossbow’s reverse draw design allows you to aim a lot quicker and it gives you more balance during shooting enhancing your accuracy. The center-balanced design helps to hold the crossbow steady during aiming and shooting, this also increases downrange accuracy.

Assembly and Sighting-in

The Tenpoint XR-410 comes almost fully assembled. You’ll only have to install the scope, the foot stirrup block, and the quiver. Sighting in the scope was also easy and quick.

Follow the instruction manual that is included in the package!

Verdict

The TenPoint XR-410 is a very well constructed crossbow, I was impressed by its performance and in particular by how accurate the crossbow is. The crossbow’s compact frame and light weight make the XR-410 suitable for ground stalking as well as hunting from a hunting blind or tree stand.

The crossbow’s the AcuDraw Pro cocking device, the RangeMaster Pro scope, and all the high-end TenPoint technologies make the XR-410 one of the most efficient hunting crossbows on the market today.

I’ve had a lot of fun with this crossbow and I will use it a lot this hunting season. I can confidently recommend this fine crossbow from TenPoint to any hunter who is looking for a high-end reverse draw TenPoint crossbow for a relatively affordable price.
